Yesterday it was reported by a Polish Business Newspaper Dziennik.pl, that CD Projekt Red has the Polish Government investigating their problematic Cyberpunk 2077 launch problems. This is just one more issue that CDPR has had to deal with in addition to a lawsuit from investors, Sony pulling the game from their store, and most recently, a substantial decline in players on Steam.
Cyberpunk 2077 has had a problematic release to say the least. To add to the troubles of last generation consoles, Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection has mounted an investigation to CDPR’s release and the studio’s ongoing progress to satisfy disgruntled fans who have requested refunds. An analysis from a lawyer familiar with proceedings indicated that, even if CDPR provided refunds in good faith and fixed the game promptly it may not absolve CDPR of wrong doing and they could be fined up to 10% of their income, or require they refund part of the sale price of the game.
According to a uokik spokesman, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection will await explanations from CDPR before they decide on any further steps. In the meantime, it seems as though Cyberpunk 2077 has seen a steady decline in player numbers on Steam. Cyberpunk has been pushed off the top of the most played list in less than 8 weeks, down to a peak of 100 thousand players from its initial all-time peak of 830 thousand players shortly after launch. CDPR is still working diligently on making the game playable for all platforms.
